Hey Cats,

This is my first post to the site, which I signed up for at the gentle prodding of Umadoshi. I don't really know how this thing goes... I'm used to the one-liner status updates of Facebook... so I'll just tell you about my evening.

Tonight there was a going-away party for my friend Sofie, who I know through climbing, and who I've affectionately referred to as "one of my Germans". Sof was one of the people I climbed with at Boulderfest, and have gotten to know more and more over the last year. She's kind of one of these "social instigators", and she's been the impetus for several of the parties and outings that have gone on, or has contributed a lot to their happening (with such ideas as the Feurzangenbowle wine, and Beers of the World party). OK... after saying that, I should clarify that she does have non-alcoholic ideas too. It's just that certain ones involving booze have been particularly spectacular. I mean, who can argue with a flaming cone of sugar and rum melting, carmelizing, and dripping into mulled wine? (Quiet uma.) Anyway, Sof has graduated, and is leaving for Norway to start up a job there, and is quite stoked about going! I don't blame her, actually; Norway seems like a spectacular place from what I've heard. But we're all really sad to see her go, so tonight we had a party for her. It was a beautiful, warm Spring night, and there was beer & an open-pit barbeque, guitar, and pie. Oh, was there pie!

Anyway, that's all for tonight. Catch ya on the flip side.
